Sector Space travel is getting worst.

I click on a planet and I end up going the wrong way. It seems more planets are being affected. Doing the tour planets I was able to click on now don't work. I hope the reason this hasn't been fix is because you are working on a new version of this game.

    No issues for me, but in order to build a more accurate report to be escalated in house elaborate on your post. Does it only happen on one faction toon or multiple? Does it only occur in one Quadrant or all. Where does it happen the most, travelling from where to where. If you can supply a video of this happening, it will help build up a bigger picture, cos as I said at the beginning I have no issues.

    Could you please give more details, such as factions, planets, ect. In order to pass this up the chain faster we need as much information as possible.
    • factions affected
    • quadrant
    • how many characters affected
    • which planets this happens with (and please include which planets you're traveling from if at all possible)

    Every little bit of detail we can get helps paint a picture of what's happening so the Bug Team can narrow down the cause. The more information we can get, the better.

    I can't take it anymore! Could everyone just chill out for two seconds before something CRAZY happens again?!

    I haven't set out to gather specific data, but I've noticed that the autonavigate doesn't seem to work properly for Klingon faction captains in the Beta Quadrant in general... it will set the speed but will not turn the ship to face the desired destination.

    Considering the dead silence on the Destabilizing Resonance Beam manuals issue, though, I see no prospect that this will ever be acknowledged, much less fixed. (Which is why I haven't bothered to detail the issue here.)

    same with my klink in beta. seems to be the only one type effected. i will test my other klinks, but i think they are hit and miss as well.
    meh

    I have had this issue many times, it seems random, I'm not sure I can answer what you ask, however I did record it happening.

    The ship moves off in a random direction and controls of the ship are messed up and in the video you can see the ship turning in circles, the only way I know to resolve this is to come to a complete stop, move the ship up and down, then replt the auto navigate target, I had just arrived at 'Orion' and plotted my next route to 'Risa' - See video link below...

    I have had this happen many times, it seems random, the last time I recorded it, I had just arrived at 'Orion' and plotted my next course to 'Risa' - I lost all control of direction, the ship was continually turning to the left. I am federation and only have one character.

    This bug has been around since like May 2017. Here is the test results from 2018 by @frtoaster which describes it as best as can be described.

    "Here's what I discovered when I tested this last year:

    If you change the vertical angle of your ship before you auto-navigate, it will work correctly.

    Sometimes, you can resolve the problem by auto-navigating to a different system first, stopping, and then auto-navigating to your intended destination. This doesn't always work.

    These two points lead me to believe that the bug depends on the vertical angle of your destination relative to your ship. When you first enter sector space, your ship starts with a vertical angle of zero. If the vertical angle of your destination relative to your ship is also zero, or in other words, if your destination lies on the same horizontal plane as your ship, then auto-navigate will fail to turn the ship.

    Most of the time, when auto-navigate fails, your ship will keep traveling at one-half speed in the same direction it was facing. Sometimes, if your heading is close to being correct, your ship will slow down to one-quarter speed as you approach your destination. Then, it will speed up to one-half again and fly straight pass your destination."

    Same but for me it's improved mostly but the auto-travel can still go the wrong way or clicking on a planet doesn't work at all and the my ship moves at full speed but it will just start bumping into other planets in it's path because obviously it didn't do what i told it to and travel automatically to the planet i clicked on lol or it does go the right way but it doesn't stop at the planets.
